EVERYBODY'S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE

EVERYBODY'S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE

A HATY Productions Musical

A hit musical for today

TEEN EDITION


Jamie New is 16 and lives on a council estate in Sheffield. Jamie doesn’t quite fit in. Jamie is terrified about the future. Jamie is going to be a sensation.

Supported by his brilliant, loving mum and surrounded by his friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies, and steps out of the darkness into the spotlight.

Sixteen: the edge of possibility. Time to make your dreams come true.
